The Mull Rally
At only 337 square miles the picturesque Isle of Mull, off the west coast of Scotland, may seem an odd motorsport venue, but it’s home to some of the most challenging roads in the UK and the 2013 Tunnock’s Mull Rally.
The Mull Rally was the first event (of only 2) in the UK to use closed public roads for rallying. The late Brian Molyneux, founder of the Tour of Mull Rally, wrote a book about the event: “The Best Rally in the World”. The title says it all, now in it’s 44th year and re-named The Mull Rally it is a serious tarmac rally.
The rallylamps.com backed Hyundai World Rally car is seeded #12 and Andy will have experienced co-driver Johhny Vance sitting alongside.
The rally covers 157 competitive stage miles over two nights and an afternoon, during the weekend of the 11th-13th October, so the LED spotlights will be burning brightly.
For an idea of the environment Andy, John and the other competitors are facing, the in-car footage below shows John MacCrone and Stuart Loudon (during last years Mull Rally) in their Fiesta R2.
